Another rumour is that the device can shoot a software combined 100MP RAW image. Whatever the case, Samsung will be looking to better both the P30 Pro and Mate 30 Pro in the camera department.

Stylus

As per the Note9 features, it can act as a remote mouse/cursor click. There was a rumour that it might have a camera as well, but that is highly unlikely.

DeX

It is standard now that flagships can use USB-C to HDMI for an Android Desktop Experience (DeX). Samsung expects to be able to cast DeX wirelessly. It includes Microsoft Remote Desktop that can access a Windows-like desktop replete with Office 365 and all its components  – dependent on having an Office 365 subscription. Of course, you can run Samsung’s Citrix Receiver client and have a real Windows desktop.

Samsung is still the Android king and its Galaxy Note10 is the ruler

With Huawei declaring it will knock Samsung off its #1 perch by the end of 2019 it will do that with its massive Chinese market (Samsung has 1% of the Chinese market) and its lower cost Nova models (which are very good value).

Samsung has a longer pedigree and is a more global brand with strong US and western nation support so it will focus on those markets.

The Note10 will be the killer flagship, but I suspect this year it is just an evolution of the S10+.

And let’s not forget that the prime reason to buy a Note is the stylus. Otherwise, S10+ is a better fit.

What about the Galaxy Note11?

The real action will heat up in the foldable and 5G space where given another year’s development and the reality of faster more integrated processors, memory, battery and camera we may see the Note11 morph into the foldable space.
